    Default Moorbrook Bloodworm

    Moorbrook Bloodworm

    Creator - Stephanie Holmes
    Tyer - Chris Dickey

    This version of the apps bloodworm has proved a very successful fly for myself at a number of local stillwaters, fishing both under a bite indicator and using short slow retrieves on a floating line. It can be used on intermediate and sinking lines but personally I have never needed to use anything heavier than a floating line

    Hook - Kamasan B110 Grubber Hook Size 12
    Body - Red UTC Thread
    Head - 3mm Goldhead
    Legs - Red Flexi-floss


    Step 1. Place goldhead over the hook and place before the eye of the hook.


    Step 2. Build up thread base of approx 5mm and trim of excess thread.


    Step 3. Take 4 inches of red flexi-floss and insert through goldhead so a loop is formed over the eye of the hook and 2 legs protrude out the back of the hook.


    Step 4. Tie the flexi-floss in place and build up the thread to form a tapered body from the goldhead to end of thread base.


    Step 5. Whip Finish and apply 1 to 2 coats of hard as nails varnish.

    Chris,
    Do you leave the loop intact without cutting it? If so what is the advantage?

    A very interesting pattern.

    Fossil, I dnt cut the loop, i leave it intact, from fishing it, the loop seems to double back on itself thus adding extra movement but also keeps the legs from wrapping around the hook
